President Kenyatta’s final say on revenue allocation

President Uhuru Kenyatta has on Thursday addressed the controversial Revenue allocation proposal by Governors saying that the National Government does not have money.

Speaking during the memorial service of the late Peter Kenneth’s mother, President Uhuru Kenyatta urged the Governors to use the available resources given unto them.

He continued by saying that the aggrieved parties will not be given what they did not saw but instead use the one allocated to them.

“You cannot eat what you have not sowed. We want our Counties to work but if you claim what is not there where will it come from?” Said, President Uhuru.
